Sometimes, all it takes is an apology.
That’s the only thing one Kentucky couple needed to forgive the beer thief who regularly plundered the alcohol stash in their backyard refrigerator for years. The Villa Hills residents were in for quite the surprise last week when they discovered a confession from their beer thief — along with seven $20 bills ($140) — on the back patio.
“I was totally shocked that somebody would actually admit to stealing [and] ask for forgiveness,” 69-year-old Dee Samad told Cinncinati.com. “I would love to meet him.”
Addressed “Dear Homeowner,” the note read: “Enclosed is a sum of cash that my friends and I owe you and your family to repay you for all of the times we have stolen from your poolside fridge/bar over the past few years.”
As the apology continued, the “Villa Hills Resident” admitted that he is not “honest enough to right this wrong” face-to-face, but he explained that his “newfound understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ” pushed him to repay the couple.
While it’s not the most creative apology note we’ve seen from a remorseful thief, Samad told Cinncinati’s WKRC that the man would be welcome in their home anytime.

Nah, but kudos to this person for not caring about the theft, and for leaving this hilarious note. (Via <a href=”http://www.flickr.com/photos/princesscarissa/3966210561/” target=”_hplink”>Carissa Marie’s Flickr</a>)

You Stole Her Summer!
That’s pretty awful. If it had been our nice patio furnishings that had been stolen, we can’t say our note would be this nice. Probably it’d be more like Mike’s! (Via <a href=”http://www.buzzfeed.com/todd/who-stole-the-patio-lrb” target=”_hplink”>Buzzfeed</a>)

She Doesn’t Even Want It Back
That bike looks cool! If it were ours we’d want it back, but damning the thief to hell via “Monster Truck” is also pretty awesome. (Via <a href=”http://dailydesigndiscoveries.com/post/168384023/funny-missing-bike-poster-but-i-hope-the-thief” target=”_hplink”>Daily Design Discoveries</a>)
Not A Fan Of “The Bicycle Thief”

We totally get why this person is upset, but why was the underwear on the roof? Seems like an odd place to put your undergarments, especially if they have, ahem, “residents.” (Via <a href=”http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com/2009/01/14/panty-raid/” target=”_hplink”>Passive Aggressive Notes</a>)
Who Steals From A Baby?
…Much less an “Infant baby.” While the note-writer was a little redundant, the crime is pretty dispicable. (Via <a href=”stuytownluxliving.com” target=”_hplink”>stuytownluxliving.com</a>)
First, we love the fact that the thief potentially got strep throat. Second, we love how the note-writer took the time to wish the thief a happy holidays at the end, that way the perpetrator gets bad karma AND guilt.

Liam Neeson’s Yogurt Was Taken
Thanks Liam! (Not Liam Neeson. That would be all too perfect and we know he’s not actually sending us emails. At least we think he’s not.)
